Superheroes: Evan and River

Last year, I posted a commissioned portrait of Joey Holmes, my friend Joel Ray's uncle.  This week I went on to draw up Joel's two sons for him as well.  River and Evan came by the apartment a few weeks back so that I could get a picture of them for reference and hang out.  River was talking about getting a heartagram tattooed on himself when he turns 18 and both the boys got talkative when they noticed my graphic novel collection.  Joel knew he wanted two small illustrations of the boys separately and one of them together, we just weren't sure what to have them doing.  River mentioned how cool he thought it would be to have the ability to throw fire as we were talking about different comics and such and after they left, the idea to draw them as comic heroes came to me...

Joel got his portraits picked up from the frame shop and send me a nice picture of the final product on his wall at home... Thanks for the project, Joel!
